Make Your Own Dear Jane Quilt
Jane A. Stickle’s 1863 quilt has inspired quilters worldwide to create their own treasured versions ever since Brenda Manges Papadakis drafted the 169 square blocks, 52 pieced border triangles, and four pieced corner triangles and published them in the book Dear Jane: The Two Hundred Twenty-Five Patterns from the 1863 Jane A. Stickle Quilt (EZ Quilting by Wrights; 1996).
Diane Rode Schneck and Judy Doenias have been teaching Dear Jane classes at The City Quilter in New York City for 12 years. Their sample quilt, In Our Time, nicknamed “Technicolor Jane,” has inspired many of their students to make their own versions.
